Re: Scope Advise - 900yd MOA

There was a time when some of us were pleased to have/afford a Leupold,the 8ˋ5—25 x50 LR,tons of elevation and windage,surely good enough when matched to a Howa.Perhaps there is a reason for FFP reticules,but for F class I have no idea why.

As Jarrod said,some optometrists understand shooters needs better than others,obviously you need some correction in your shooting eye.

Re: Practical Rifle traing course

No idea,as I haven’t shot Practical Rifle,however if you are interested in the match I would go and see what it is about,with a bit of luck you will learn something and importantly you will meet participants in the match.

Re: promoting the nraa image

The above looks a bit odd,seems to be a mix of Bruce’s post and some of mine.I am not even going to try and correct it.Work it out yourselves.

Re: Seb PodPad

Others may chip in, but IMO if you like me dont hold the rifle the pod pad will likely give elevation shots.
